I love this card so much! It satisfies all my criteria for a Quick & Easy Card: simple layout, great colors and a fun, bold stamp set!

I pulled a simple card sketch from my Card Sketch Library – a simpler version of Card Sketch #8. I then went with a brand new color combination:

Colors 0812

And finally, the use of the fun In Symmetry Stamp Set meant that the stamping would be quick & easy as well! You’ll notice that for the sentiment, I went with the Stampin’ Up! White Craft Ink. If you’re not familiar with this ink pad, you can learn more about it from this post. Here’s how I made this card:


Supplies Used On This Project

Project Measurements

  • Basic White: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored at 4-1/4”
  • Highland Heather:  3” x 4”
  • Basic White:  2-3/4” x 3-3/4”
  • Fresh Freesia:  1/2” x 2-3/4”

Project Instructions

1. Fold the Basic White cardstock in half at the score line and burnish well with your Bone Folder.

2. Using the strip of Fresh Freesia cardstock, stamp the sentiment using the Basic White Craft Ink Pad; set aside to dry.

3. Using the 2-3/4” piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the flower in Gorgeous Grape at the top of the cardstock.  Add the stem and leaves using Mossy Meadow ink.

4. Adhere the White cardstock onto the Highland Heather cardstock and adhere to the center of the card base.

5. Using the Fresh Freesia strip, wrap about 5” of Gorgeous Grape ribbon around the left side and trim with your Paper Snips.  Adhere to the base card using Stampin’ Dimensionals so that it just covers the bottom of the stamped stem.6. Adhere one of the In Color Jewels to the right of the stamped sentiment to finish.
